Birth Photography

We are always privileged to help you document your entire birth experience, from anticipation to first breath.  It is a joyous, precious, and fleeting experience you will never regret capturing.  We use photojournalistic techniques, rendering tasteful and timeless imagery.  Most of what we capture is displayed for you in black and white for a soft, artistic feel which more properly conveys the mood.

{ common questions }

What happens if I labor for more than 10 hours?

Generally, by the time you arrive at the hospital and notify us when you’ve reached 4cm dilation, your birth doesn’t last much longer than this.  However, in that circumstance, you will have to purchase additional time at the conclusion of your birth. I will stay as long as requested at the published rates, provided I do not have personal commitments or ticketed travel that I am unable to change or reschedule.  When I take on a birth client, I notify my portrait session clients that a reschedule may be necessary, as the unpredictability of a birth requires flexibility.

Do I have to purchase post-delivery photography?

Not for the initial recovery period.  While mom is being attended to by the medical staff for post-delivery care, I capture baby’s first moments of life including measurements, footprints, time in the incubator, and other details (as physical space and personnel permit).  After this point or once baby begins the first feeding (whichever occurs last), I consider the birth session completed and will bid farewell.  If you would like me to stay through the point of being placed in your permanent room to document baby being welcomed by special visitors, you will need to purchase this additional time at $75 per half hour.  These additional images are included on your USB.

Are there any hidden fees?

The only fees not listed are any incidentals such as tolls, parking, or additional on-call time as requested.  (I will not charge you for meals I eat or other costs not associated with the labor event.)  Sometimes, these fees can be waived or reduced, so we will discuss these charges in detail during your consultation.   Otherwise, there are no surprises.  The flat fee for your complete birth covers everything without worry!
